Circular Bicycle Bridge Hovers Over Busy Highway

Circular Bicycle Bridge Hovers Over Busy Highway

Hovenring is a floating bridge in the Netherlands that offers cyclists and pedestrians a fun crossing.

Hovenring is a circular bridge in the Dutch city of Eindhoven that hovers like a flying saucer above a busy intersection. Designed by ipv Delft, a Dutch design and engineering office, the steel cycle bridge is suspended using cables.

The bridge is centered around a 70-metre high pylon and is open to pedestrians and cyclists, offering them an exciting way to cross the highway.

Circular Cycle Bridge Hovers Over Busy Highway

The “cyclist roundabout” is a new landmark for the city. There used to be a level crossing located there but the intersection needed to be changed so it could cope with increased traffic. As Eindhoven City Council refrains from cyclist underpasses and didn’t want a level crossing roundabout either, ipv Delft came up with this solution.
